Eagles stun Kalampa as Napsa maintain top spot
Log leaders Napsa Stars extended their winning streak to five games when they beat visiting Kabwe Warriors 1-0 to extend lead at the summit of the Zambian Super League to 8 points.
First half substitute Mukuma Chitoshi who was voted the man of the match finished off from inside the box after pouncing on a blocked shot in the 44th minute, 7 minutes after his introduction.
Kabwe Warriors are clearly yet to adapt to new coach Elijah Chikwanda’s tactics as they showed little going forward with their closest chance falling to Lameck Kafwaya whose shot in the box was saved by Paul Banda.
Paul Simpemba gave a good account of himself in the Warriors midfield but they did little to negate the forward play of Napsa.
The win sees the Tenant Chilumba coached side move to 34 points.
This was the third loss for Warriors in four games and they currently lie in the relegation zone on 14 points two points away from safety.
And in Choma, Nkana missed out on a chance to go second when Green Eagles caused an upset by beating the record champions 2-0 in Choma.
Ironically, former Nkana coach Zeddy Saileti saw his Lumwana Radiants comprehensively beaten 3-1 by Power Dynamos as the Kitwe side shot into second position ahead of Lusaka Dynamos who have a game in hand on goal difference.
There was also a massive result for Konkola Blades which sees them sail away from relegation when they beat Nakambala Leopards 3-0.
